There are currently two facilities, with one in Tokyo and the other all way up in Sapporo. Open from morning to evening, Monday through Sunday, guests are free to partake in the facilities for as long as long as they like!  This allows for guests to carefully design their dream piece, receive adequate training and create their vision.  With over 100 different types of equipment, it is possible for many people to work simultaneously and thus make new friends with fellow like-minded people or receive advice or compliments as well.  ♪

The feeling of accomplishment when successfully creating, making or even assembling something tangible with your own two hands is a universal emotion. Under careful training and continued guidance and supervision from qualified staff, guests are able to use professional woodworking, metalworking, leather, ceramic, textile and sewing equipment.  For more technical designs, there are also digital processing 3D printing capabilities as well!

Furthermore if guests are wanting to create complex or time consuming pieces, there is also a storage option where you can keep your unfinished project on site on then visit over multiple days until you finish your one of a kind work of art! ♡

So why not try immersing yourself in new experiences and enjoy new sounds, smells and sensations of size, weight and coarseness? Perfect for a memorable keepsake, souvenir or gift for that special someone, check out Maker’s Base next time you in Tokyo or Sapporo!

That said however, if you lack the confidence to make something with your own two hands or if logistically you can’t visit one of the workshops, then there is also a “custom order” feature! Here you can send in any sketches, notes and requests and they will create the piece and send it to you!  Moreover, you can simply check out there gallery and select some previously pre-made prominent pieces.
